Teaching Kids to Learn is an integrated study skills curriculum designed for presentation is grades 5 - 7. Eight critical study skills are taught: listening strategies, organizational skills, note taking from a lecture, noting taking when reading, memory strategies (ten specific mnemonic devices), organizing homework, and resisting peer pressure to talk in class or avoid homework. Story based dilemmas read to students elicit student interest and serve as starting points to introduce specific study methods. Homework activities are assigned to practice skill use and promote generalization. Posters describing each study skill are provided. While Teaching Kids to Learn is written for presentation in regular classroom settings, the material can readily be modified for presentation to special populations.
